Wild Skeins and Winter Skies: Paintings and Observations of Pink-footed Geese
Explores in paint the lives of pink-footed geese. Over ninety paintings, each painted outdoors, depict many aspects of the birds' behaviour and show them in an array of weather conditions. Short notes add additional detail to the images and help evoke a sense of 'being there'.
In further chapters the artist describes his approach to painting from life, shares accounts of memorable days spent watching geese and explains much of the birds' behaviour. This knowledge has been gathered over the last fifteen winters and represents hundreds of hours of field observations, providing a deep insight into the lives of these wonderful birds.
